By now, I thought I’ve experienced the maximum inspiration and relaxation that flotation can be gifted to a person. I have always been pleasantly surprised by the positive energy and tranquility that I have felt afterward, but this float flipped my entire world upside down.
After an extremely busy week, filled with negative energy and chaos, I found myself desiring my weekly aquatic escape. Emotionally exhausted, I closed my eyes immediately after getting in and wished for my stress to be lifted from me.
That’s when things began altering for me. I noticed how stationary I was without an abundance of concentration exerted this time.
Was I awake? Was I asleep? I couldn’t tell anymore.
Electric volts raced through my arms. My imagination brought forth before my eyes, peaceful images lined in lights. I heard the sounds of the ocean in my head interrupted by the visions of galaxy-painted water.
I assumed that I must have been dreaming, as the sudden jerking of my muscles would send shocks down my spine. My session felt reminiscent of astral projection, which I was always skeptical of, seeing as I have never experienced it.
I felt myself shiver and knew I must be awake. I listened to my heart race and slowly pump with calming thoughts.
The echo of my voice rang throughout my head.
“Everything is going to be ok.”
